Our Vision and Values
Oasis Church started in 2010. Our vision is to open up a well of the Holy Spirit – an oasis – where people can come to drink in the love of God and experience healing in their lives. An oasis is a place of rest, refreshing, restoration and refilling. We believe that transformation is available for everyone through the cross of Jesus, the word of God and the power of the Holy Spirit. The story of Isaac opening up wells and finding a place to flourish in Genesis 26:19-22 has really inspired us. Oasis Church is a safe place where people can flourish.
As part of the Partners in Harvest worldwide family of churches, which has its base at Catch the Fire, Toronto, we embrace the core vision and values of PIH expressed in the four FIRE values.
F. The Father’s love revealed through the Lord Jesus Christ.
I. Intimacy with God and hearing his voice.
R. Restoration of the heart and the healing of inner hurts.
E. Extending the kingdom of God through the equipping and empowering of the Holy Spirit.
“To see the church immersed in the love, grace and presence of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, whilst pursuing intimacy with God through worship, prayer, soaking in his presence and loving his word.”
At Oasis Church we are committed to deepening our friendships with the wider body of Christ in Perth and Perthshire. Robert meets regularly for friendship and prayer with other pastors and ministers in Perth. Our main partnership is with Perth Elim Church and we hold joint prayer meetings and outreach activities.
Students and Young People. We only have a small number of students at present but this is an area of church life that we are very keen to develop. Oasis is a Fusion Connection Church. Fusion serves students and churches by connecting students to churches and providing training and resources for youth mission. Students and young people are very welcome at Oasis Church. We want to see young people trained and equipped to serve God and released to reach their generation.
The initial group of 12 from 2010 has now grown to over 40. Our strengths are love, acceptance and unity. We highly value God’s Word, and our worship is Spirit-led and passionate. Our heart is to see God pour out his Spirit in revival.
